This is a great place to visit. I have always been one to take flowers to my relatives and friends gravesites. Many, many since I got my first car in 1955! I had the pleasure of growing up in Southern California and meeting many, many stars serving them as a parking attendant at the Beverly Hills Hotel. I don't know what I liked best them or their fancy cars! I plan to add many names to this site from a small cemetery in South Dakota holding many ancestors of mine. This is a great way to visit graves and leave flowers and wishes.
John Patterson Morrow Sr. It isn't John Patterson Morrow Sr. who is a famous grave in the Cemetery. It is his son John Patterson Morrow Jr. who is. The reason why is because my grand uncle who is related to him gave him a section of their plot and he was buried facing the south because he said he would never turn his back on the south. So John Patterson Morrow Jr. is buried facing South instead of east-west like others in the Cemetery.
Charley "Sea Lion" Hall The most widely accepted story of Granpa Charley getting his nick name, was basically, what you stated. He sounded like a sea lion. His voice becoming louder and hoarser as the game went on, when he coached base. The family story: He showed up for spring training one year in Santa Barbara with a mustache. Between his shouting, usually in Spanish, and the mustache, the "guys" said he must be a "Sea Lion". (At that time, sea lions were a common site along the coast between Ventura, his home, and Santa Barbara.) Thank you for your interest! Always, ReBecca Glidewell-Hall
J. Howard Horton Thank you Gary, My Uncle Howard was one of a kind. I am sure if I had lived close to him I would have had a different opinion but because we lived 4 or 5 states away and only saw him occasionally. Well he was really something special. I think when they started talking to him about retiring from the lumber yard in his late 80's he was really depressed. The last visit I had with him he told me about riding to his grandmother's in a wagon pulled by a team of horses. Times have changed. Susan
P-38 Lightning Hi Gary~thank you for your kind words left on my profile. Your father helped in the war effort that supplied one of the most famous fighter aircraft's in WWII, the P-38 Lightning. It is only fitting to his memory that a P-38 token be placed on his memorial and I am proud to place another one there. May your father rest in peace.
